How should we judge a government?

In Malaysia, if you don't watch television or read newspapers, you are uninformed; but if you do, you are misinformed!

"If you're not careful, the newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed, and loving the people who are doing the oppressing." - Malcolm X

Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience - Mark Twain

Never argue with an idiot, otherwise people won't know which one of you is the idiot.
Since light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright - until you hear them speak.

Why we should be against censorship in a court of law: Publicity is the very soul of justice … it keeps the judge himself, while trying, under trial. - Jeremy Bentham

"Our government is like a baby's alimentary canal, with a happy appetite at one end and no
responsibility at the other. " - Ronald Reagan

If you're not going to speak up, how is the world supposed to know you exist? “Orang boleh pandai setinggi langit, tapi selama ia tidak menulis, ia akan hilang di dalam masyarakat dan dari sejarah.” - Ananta Prameodya Toer (Your intellect may soar to the sky but if you do not write, you will be lost from society and to history.)

Malaysiakini: Pakatan Perak win with simple majority possible


by Zulaikha Zulkifli & Lee Long Hui

Excerpt:

ANALYSIS  "PERAK After two weeks of aggressive campaigning, perhaps over the past two years, Pakatan Rakyat is expected to regain the silver state with a simple majority and contribute another two parliamentary seats on their way to Putrajaya.

However, capturing the two parliamentary seats of Lumut and Sungai Siput remain uncertain.

The 2008 general election saw Pakatan Rakyat snaring 31 state seats out of 59 to form the state government, but could only take 11 of 24 parliamentary seats.

For this round, a conservative estimation is that Pakatan can win the five marginal seats of Pengkalan Baru, Manjoi, Sungai Rapat, Kubu Gajah and Selama.

PAS is contesting these seats, with Manjoi and Sungai Rapat close to downtown Ipoh, and three others located in semi-rural areas.

But the opposition coalition might lose Behrang in the Tanjung Malim parliamentary constituency, in the four-cornered fight due to PKR's weak machinery.


While retaining their existing seats, they are eyeing the Kuala Kangsar and Larut parliamentary constituencies.

Malay constituencies are the main battlegrounds for both PAS and Umno..."
